REFLECTIONS OF NATURE

REFLECTIONS OF NATURE

On the outskirts of Beverly Hills lies a crush worthy marvel of minimalist design, the Oak Pass Main House by holistic designers, Walker Workshop. This breathtaking property fully embraces its surrounding natural landscape with open spaces and large clear glass windows that allow nature to be seen at all times.

The most show-stopping feature is the immense infinity pool that reflects the property’s largest oak tree. This carefully planned visual cue is a clear representation of how the natural landscape simultaneously lives both inside and outside of this living space.

The notion of Biophilia lies at the heart of the carefully considered design of the property. This principle follows that if we consciously include nature in interior and architectural design the result is not only harmoniously appealing, but it also unconsciously reconnects the constructed realities of the mind with the realism of the great outdoors.

Luxury designer brand, Escada’s headquarters in Munich offers an insight into the ephemeral world of ever-changing fashion. Designed by internationally acclaimed Architecture office, Carbondale, this retro-futuristic space glints and gleams in luxe colours from every direction.

The space is conceived as a large open plaza cordoned off by strips of polished stainless steel that resemble the serrated edge of textile scissors, while its exterior landscape features four different blossoming species of flowers that mimic the different season of fashion. The result is an exceptional showcase of the meeting point between form and function in irreplicable style.

JONATHAN ADLER’S DREAM LAND

JONATHAN ADLER’S DREAM LAND

Slip into the sublime with celebrated designer, Jonathan Adler’s surreal Dreamland. Plucked straight from the realm of dreams and realised according to a dedicated commitment to craftsmanship and luxury, Adler’s latest installation at Canada’s Interior Design Show 2020 transports you to the world of your wildest imaginations.

A dazzling presentation of the versatile Caesarstone material, Adler’s Dreamland features a whimsical landscape of curiosities including clouds, rainbows, feathers, faces and neo-classical pillars. Caeserstone is normally used to create sharp angles and straight lines but thanks to Adler’s deft ability and imagination, it has been transformed into an ethereal playground of the senses.


Adler’s signature affinity for the fun and fabulous can be seen in the sculptures he used to accent the playful nature of the space. These unique pieces displace familiar iconography from the everyday to the world of fine-art in a glamorous style only he can achieve.

ANGLED SOPHISTICATION

ANGLED SOPHISTICATION

We are totally crushing on this architectural masterpiece in Morelia, Mexico. Its construction involved the architectural challenge of integrating the house harmoniously into a complex natural environment – mountains of solid rock. In order to achieve this, two levels were constructed on stone while the third is suspended on a wall-column. The visual result simulates suspension as if the house were floating on air.

With the world’s finest at their fingertips, guests can treat themselves to refreshing drinks while leisurely lounging on the deck in the sun or crystal-clear pool.

The result of a recent renovation project by Soda Design, the creative masterminds behind Lima, Taboo, Harem nightclub and the like, the entire building including the Marley has just been refurbished and revitalized to usher in the New Year. Visionary director of Soda Design, Gregor Bremer knows how to put a space together like no other and he knows quality when he sees it.

There is no place in the world where you can comfortably enjoy a sunset like this. The mountains and ocean seem to become one as the sky shifts in colour from the bluest of blue to oranges and yellows, unlike anything you’ve seen before. It is the perfect backdrop to complement the rich experience Baptiste offers. So treat yourself and get better acquainted with the Camp’s Bay lifestyle with a cocktail in hand. You won’t be disappointed.

MYSTICALLY MESMERIZING

MYSTICALLY MESMERIZING

The no sunset, no sunrise pavillion by Walllasia Design is a temporary mirrored structure installed by the seaside near Ao nang beach in Thailand. The installation combines the contextualization of the physicality of the space and the spiritual aspects of life.

Completely covered in mirrors, the pavilion offers a peaceful retreat from the hectic resort town. Inside, a sculpture of the mystical Yai Sa — an old woman who patiently awaits for her partner who left home to find the ultimate truth — acts as a symbol of love and waiting.

“this project is life-specific, it represents the parallel world between the ultimate truth world and illusional world” according to the designers:   Kamin Lertchaiprasert and Suriya Umpansiriratana,

“it is also there to create awareness of the condition of a timeless moment that is not self-attached. that is the connection between inner and outer space (subjective and objective), you and me.”
